'Getaway' -- three stars

<b>PG-13; 1:34 running time</b><br><br>

"Getaway" will never be mistaken for a "Fast & Furious" sequel. It's more like "Taken -- for a Ride!" Terrible but, in its squealing way, sporadically fun-terrible, it features a glowering Ethan Hawke as a former professional race car driver named Brent Magna -- or Brock Magma -- or Frack Slaterock - or something like that. Let's call him Magma.<p>
